Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

My name saint is famous for her purity. Her untouched-by-boys-ness.

I am also famous for this, by concidence.

Antonia Lucia Labella has two secrets: At fifteen, shes still waiting for her first kiss, and she wants to be a saint. An official one. Unfortunately, the two events seem equally unlikely to happen, but its not for lack of trying. Every month for the last eight years, Antonia has proposed a new patron saint to the Vatican, bravely offering herself for the post. (So what if shes not dead?) And shes been praying for the attention of the tall, dark, and so good-looking Andy Rotellini way too long to admit. But then theres her friend Michael McGinnis. Antonia doesnt even know what to ask the saints to do about that situation. Hes kissed all the girls in school. Should she just get it over with and kiss Michael? Not a chance! Prospective saints never give up that easily.

Synopsis:

Antonia Lucia Labella wants to be a saint. For eight years, 15-year-old Antonia has sent a petition to the Vatican proposing a new patron saint and offering herself for the post.

Synopsis:

Two boys. One girl. A first kiss. And a secret wish for . . . sainthood?
